Decent hotel which is superbly located close to the city palace, the lake and the city. The rooms we stayed in were small with average amenities (Average room). The win is the poolside area and the suites which are awesome.

Well its expensive. Rooms small. Luxury or royalty is not cheap and not small. Well my first feeling was ... why I came here. I could have a bigger and better place at the same price ... but gradually I realised ... The view is what u pay for. Sitting on lake pichola and with the view of lake palace...

Me and my husband went there for our first night a year back. I have been to this place earlier (As i belong to this city), but never got a chance to visit any of its suites. The suite selected by my husband was the best choice i must say. That was a lake facing suite. View was definitely amazing...

This hotel has a good view of the lake and it is part of the old family palace. so you just walk to go the lake boat tour or to the museum. Rooms are confortable but not modern. Menu stays the same so after two days you may have tried enough the mouton/chicken/vegetables/rice offerings and you may also choose some...

The Shiv Niwas was built to house the Maharana's guests. The rooms are sumptuous and the famous pool terrace is the best place to have lunch . The views are incomparable and you can easily walk to the City Palace and the wonderful bazaar beyond .

We were lucky to be upgraded. The general staff were helpful. The building is fabulous, but the decor is very dated and not very pleasant. The two of us in our family who ate a particular cooked vegetable dish became violently ill in the night. One of us picked up e coli, campylobacter and giardia, probably all from this evening....
